Before I buy, how do I change the font?

#1
Since the number one thing people do on a forum is read, I'm expecting an easy way to customize the font. Yet, after several minutes of using the xF demo, I have no clue.

I could work with the CSS directly, but for $140 I was hoping this would be a bit easier. This georgia serif font is a loser, and I would need it changed to arial, sans-serif.

I searched but could not find an answer. Can anyone provide directions? Thanks!

Users can change the font of their posts from the editor, you can change the entire font however:

Style Properties->General->Body->Font Family

110 views in 20 minutes - that is impressive. A very active community - I am encouraged... but still waiting patiently.
Sorry, I got sidetracked ;)

I tried again, and this did not work in the xF demo.

Style Properties->General->Body->Font Family

I also tried Content > Font Family, but doesn't work.

OK, I'm done testing the demo. It doesn't seem to be working as expected. I've tried various entries, Arial, sans-serif; "Arial", sans-serif; arial, sans-serif; etc. and nothing's working.

Provide a screenshot, if you can. That'll help us help you better.

I could provide screenshots, but as posted I'm done wasting time trying to get the xF demo to work as expected. I know enough CSS and have worked with other forums enough to know how this should work, and it doesn't. I can always edit the CSS if needed after buying.

Any of you might want to check the demo to see if it's working OK. Thanks for you time and efforts.

I just checked on the demo and indeed it works like this...

Arial, sans-serif

Right, I never used the semi-colon. I only used it in an earlier post when listing a few ways I tried.

I tried again with Arial, sans-serif - but it won't change the font that I am now typing and you are now reading (in the demo).
